Insect and other animal in the garden workshop: Friends and foes

Agriculture, Community Workshops

Summer is officially here: veggies are growing, flowers are blooming, and our agriculture workshop series continues with an insect workshop! 

Which insects are the enemies in your garden and how do we ward them off? Which ones are useful and how do we attract them? What can you do with the famous Montreal squirrels? This workshop will answer all of theses questions and more!

*Please note that the same workshop will be offered on two occasions, and both will be bilingual.

When: Wednesday July 24th and Tuesday 30th, from 5:30 to 7:30 PM
Where: Santropol Roulant, 111 rue Roy East
Cost: 10$ – 15$ (suggested contribution, pay-what-you-can) + 5$ for your homemade insecticide

The workshop will have a theoretical and practical component, which will give you the opportunity to make your own natural insecticide to take home. It is recommended that you bring your own spray bottle to transport the insecticide home.

The workshop will cover: the diversity of insects, their impacts on the plants, the solutions to keep it off, the importance of pollinators, etc.
